What is a mouthguard?
Mouthguards are resilient appliances that fit over your teeth. When worn during contact activities, mouthguards help protect against injuries to the teeth, jaw and areas in and around your mouth.
How does a sports mouthguard work?
When there is an impact to your mouth or jaw, a mouthguard acts as a cushion that redistributes the force of the blow evenly. Studies show that properly fitted sports mouthguards when worn during an impact can prevent or lessen the severity of injuries such as concussion, neck injuries and other potentially severe injuries.
A mouthguard provides a barrier between your teeth and your mouth’s soft tissue. As a result, sports mouthguards help prevent damage to teeth as well as cuts to lips, gums, and other soft tissue in and around your mouth.
Choosing a Mouthguard
Mouthguards vary in terms of cost, comfort, and effectiveness. The ideal mouthguard is durable, resilient, and comfortable. It should fit properly, be easy to clean, and should not affect your ability to breathe or speak.
